11 Best Places To Propose in Dallas, TX

1. Bluebonnet Fields in the Spring Time

Bluebonnet Fields (also known as Lupins to other parts of the world) are a sight to see during the Spring time in Texas. As the state flower of Texas, Bluebonnets can be found cascading along highways and sprawling across fields as a result of Lady Bird Johnson’s campaign encouraging states across the U.S. to plant native flower species. This can be an impromptu outing, or you can do a little more research to plan for the perfect spot to propose among the Bluebonnets. Make sure to bring a camera because you won’t want to miss your partner’s reaction when you show them their diamond engagement ring from My Trio Rings!

2. Dallas Arboretum & Botanical Garden

You can go as far as to schedule a private viewing experience on the GeoDeck, as the sun sets over the city, to have an intimate and breathtaking wedding proposal above the city of Dallas.

The Dallas Arts District is the largest in the country, with 68 acres and 19 contiguous blocks. Spend an evening exploring its nooks and crannies, stopping by museum exhibitions, churches, restaurants and performance halls. For a more detailed look at Dallas’ architectural history, sign up for a 90-minute walking tour that will guide you through the 1890s until present day.

10. Garden of Delight


Escape the busy city and enter the magical world of Nasher Sculpture Center. The center is composed of a 10,000 indoor gallery space and a 1.5 acre outdoor “roofless museum.” Head to the garden, a peaceful oasis in the middle of the Dallas Arts District, featuring live oaks, weeping willows, stone pathways, pools, fountains and 25 large-scale sculptures. Find a quiet spot ideal for your romantic proposal.

11. Gondola Romance


Plan a Venetian-inspired proposal – complete with a charming gondola ride – like college sweethearts Phill and Natalie. Phill knew Natalie was the one for him from the very first time they met, and he decided the time to propose was right while they were vacationing in Dallas with their two best friends. Some of their happiest times together had been on the water – on a boat, along a river or by the ocean – so Phill wanted to incorporate that element into his proposal.


He worked with Paparazzi Proposals to set up a gondola ride in Dallas for the two of them (while their friends claimed to be getting food, but were actually watching nearby with confetti ready). In a peaceful, intimate moment, while they were gliding over the water in the gondola, Phill proposed with a diamond engagement ring. Natalie was completely surprised, and the happy couple celebrated with their friends after she said “yes.”
